>an affinity for THIS music itself that does not necessarily require having seen them live:

Right. Some people latch onto this particular music and REALLY latch onto it; for whatever reason, it generated a whole scene around it consisting of other people who latched onto this particular music and REALLY latched onto it, and while that was definitely a big part of the experience (almost two sides of the same coin, in the sense that the best iterations of the music that drew people in were actually live, so you got the culture with the music and the music with the culture) ... if there's wasn't Something About the Music in the first place there'd have been no scene and no nothing and we wouldn't be talking about it now!
